that problem. >> warren buffett came out this week and said the exact opposite. no disrespect to you but he's worth $40 billion and is considered to be the most successful investor in the history of mankind. he says throughout his life, throughout his career, there have been many periods with much higher tax rates, it's never made a dicky bird's difference to people's willingness to invest and that the combination of reduced spending and a few higher taxes for the wealthier people in america is the perfect answer. i just don't get a coherent argument why you can't do a bit of both. >> here's the issue, is that we have never had a period with more than 1% of the gdp in terms of tax hikes since 1969. that was the last time that happened and that put us into a recession and then we had several decades of increasing unemployment. the amount of tax hikes we're talking about here, piers, are about 3% of the gdp. so you're comparing apples to oranges. you can't say well, under clinton, this didn't happen. that was less than 1% of the gdp. we're talking three times that in the situation that we're

speaking out on tax policy. next, i'll break down why warren buffett is just plain wrong. gerri: warren buffett is getting a lot of attention this week for his comments on the fiscal cliff . basically, the investing mobil says it rich people, that is people like him, should pay more in taxes. it sounds magnanimous. i believe the case he builds for higher taxes, well, the reasoning as a big hole in it. here is why. the contention that rich people will stop hiring is nonsense. we already know that more than a million americans to employ people and paying there taxes through there individual income-tax. according to the heritage foundation, the amount their taxes would rise would be equivalent to one employee salary. one person there would not hire. we will what is more, rinsed and young says these tax hikes would kill 710,000 jobs. buffett also says that rich people will stop investing. again, nonsense. when you tax something usually get less of it, like cigarette taxes to curb smoking or carbon tax to curb carbon emissions. financial advisers say individual investors are considering doin

. billionaire warren buffett chimes in that tax hikes won't stop the wealthy from investing. in our cover story, the woman who led the securities and exchange commission after the 2008 financial crisis is stepping down. mary schapiro took over an agency under fire for ignoring repeated warnings about the bernie madoff ponzi scheme. in 2008, the regulatory sec was itself under scrutiny, critized for failing to anticipate the lehman brothers bankruptcy, which sent financial markets reeling, and also missing the warning signs of bernie madoff's multi-billion dollar ponzi scheme. "before she got there, they almost needed someone to come in and confess." mary schapiro, who president obama said will be replaced by commissioner elisse walter, overhauled sec enforcement and made it more proactive. "to get out there and defend investors, as opposed to trying to figure out what happened after." but critics say for the dozens of insider trading investigations, the sec under schapiro did not crack down on top executives during the financial crisis or since. "the mf global mess - is anyone prosecuted? who's
dimon is getting public praise from billionaire warren buffett. this week on charlie rose, mr. buffett said he thinks mr. dimon could be the "best person for the job" after treasury secretary timothy geithner steps down. mr. buffett notes that dimon could deftly handle another financial crisis, even though jp morgan was forced to take a government bailout during the financial crisis and dimon came under question earlier this year, when the bank lost 6 billion dollars in a trading blunder. cyber monday could almost be re- named "mobile monday." a growing number of consumers used their smartphones and tablets to shop on cyber monday this year. it contributed to an overall bump in sales of 30% from last year. comscore is estimating that sales will reach a whopping 1.5 billion dollars. amazon's kindle fire was the day's most searched-for gift on the web. others that were high in demand were uggs, ipads, the ipod touch, legos, and the wii. some consumers did not get what they bargained for this cyber monday. 132 websites in the u.s. and europe were shut down after allegedly selling counterf
, raising the marginal tax rate on the top end is spur purely a symbolic t. and the reason warren buffett is able to say, well, my secretary is taxed at a higher rate than i am is not because of that rate, it's because of the capital gains rate at 15%. >> we need to ask him about that, too. and i'm sure he would agree capital gains rates, which were about 28% under bill clinton when we had the roaring '90s, are at 15% right now. i've got to say, this is one of those areas where, when i was in congress, i wanted the capital gains rate to go down, thought it was too high at 28%. it's at 15% now. if you want to look at income disparity, you know, in part, the 15% capital gains tax rate and carried interest allows the super wealthy to get by paying a hell of a lot less than middle-class americans. >> if you're for fairness, that's where the fairness is. that's why the rich don't pay as much tax as the others. the marginal tax rate is marginal. if you raise it a couple of percentage points, it doesn't change much. if you raise that capital gains rate, that's where the big money is made. >> he
tax, 15%, gift taxes, 15%, let's make sure that warren buffett finally starts paying at least as much as his secretary, in the percentage, and, what has been proposed, here, by the president, will not have warren buffett paying the same as his secretary, in percentage. let's have a flat tax, lou. let's take the president at his word. if you make more you will pay more and this is the only way that that is going to happen. >> lou: you know, i believe the speaker boehner, perhaps the president himself may have been talking to you, talking to steve forbes and others who talked about the possibility of reforming the entire tax code. that could -- >> this is a great time. you know, the kind of time... and, not only that, let's don't forget the last time that the senate had a budget, it was when harry reid worked with his friend, speaker pelosi and nobody in the 2008 budget complained that it wasn't spending enough money. let's go back to 2008. $2.5 trillion, and cuts off a trillion in spending, right there. >> lou: there are all sorts of ways to get there, as you suggest here tonight, and,
, warren buffett, the op-ed in the "new york times" and we all know in the past he said he personally would welcome a tax hike. >> right. >> here is a snippet from this morning. forget about the rich and ultra rich going on strike and stuffing their ample funds under their mattress if gas, capital gains rates, and ordinary income rates are increased, the ultra rich including me will forever pursue investment opportunities. where is the room for the gop to continue to argue against taxing the rich at a higher rate. >> there really isn't for a whole host of reasons not the least of which is politically speaking it doesn't make sense. the study you talked about at the beginning, here is what a lot of people don't realize. for many americans the way they do christmas, they take out a loan. that's how they pay for christmas presents hoping the tax return that they get back, the money they get back from the taxes will be able to pay off that loan. that's how a lot of americans are living their lives. i think the republicans have got to recognize they can no longer not party that is going to defen
norquist's imagination does such a response to exist? >>guest: okay, warren buffett has made a lot of money, some of it off of gaming the political system, he invests in insurance companies, and lobbies to raise the death tax which drives people to buy insurance. okay? you can get rich playing that game but it is not investing, it is playing crony politics in economics. that is a shame. he has done the same thing with green investing. same on him for gaming the system and giving money to politicians who write rules that make your assets go up. the real economy, if he thinks the government can take a dollar and you go do an invest or who does not have that dollar and it does not infect investment that is silly unless he lands on going to obama and getting money from a stimulus package and he considers that investment. when the government takes a dollar away from the american people or $1 trillion, that is a trillion not available to be saved and invested, and i am sorry if buffett can't see that but that is silly. >>neil: do you worry, fairly or not, you have been seen as you unique wizard o
